Grandpa's Truck


Grandpa drove his truck everywhere except to church.

He drove it to Fountain Green.

He drove it to collect food for the food bank.

He drove it to get groceries for his neighbor Mrs. McFarlain.

When Grandpa died, Ben inherited Grandpa's truck

It's only fair considering that one of Grandpa's favorite memories of his truck involved Ben.

One day Ben and Grandpa were in Fountain Green.

Ben was riding in the back of Grandpa's truck

Grandpa went over a bump.

Ben flew out of the back of the truck and landed on the dirt road.

When Grandpa realized that he had lost his passenger he started to laugh.

I think he laughed for two weeks straight.

I don't think Ben was laughing as he ran, trying to catch up to Grandpa and his truck.

Grandpa laughed every time he told the story of Ben and the truck.

Ben, are you laughing now?

What a great truck! Does Ben have any residual effects from getting bounced, or was he still young enough to be flexible? Love it that your Grandpa cracked up.

By the way... my mom's been making me cry at work for years. JK. But she does tend to see the eternal perspective more often than I do.

And just so you know, I too, am dying to hear how the escapades of Noelle and Fernando, the doctor of goats turns out.

Bon chance mon ami!

Lol!! I didn't know that...it's like "Savanah Smiles"...kind of. That guy was messed up after that...maybe that's why Ben wears his hats crooked...maybe it messed up his alignment...
